In the past I took ferries between South Korea and Japan six times, but the most recent was seven years ago.

I seem to recall that besides the Japanese and Korean travellers that there were also many Chinese in the ferry terminal.

I thought this would've been the Busan terminal, but maybe it was the Shimonoseki terminal. I also seem to recall that the Chinese side was Qingdao, but I don't trust my memory completely.

I know there are ferries from Incheon and Osaka to China, but for this question I'm not asking about those since that info is easy to find.

Per Japanese Wikipedia, there is a twice-weekly ferry service between Shimonoseki and Suzhou, China, operated by the Suzhou Shimonoseki Ferry company.

A ferry to Qingdao is also listed, however it ceased operation in December 2015 due to low ridership.
